Mr. Arno J. Reichel

I have been teaching for seven years at Southland College Prep. Along with the other members of the science department, I am working to incorporate the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) into the classroom. An emphasis is placed on student discussion and inquiry-based instruction, instead of the more traditional lecture/exam structure. This shift in learning is accompanied by increased student participation and interactions with a variety of scientific topics.

In addition to my responsibilities in the classroom, I am also a member of the faculty council of the National Honors Society and the sponsor of Chess and Games Club. I also offer tutoring services after school, with an emphasis on the ACT/SAT standardized tests. Finally, I serve as a Saturday instructor for a larger group that focuses on ACT/SAT preparation.
